Who is Cubania

We are Cubania Travel and we love what we do. We are the cycling and active travel experts in Cuba. We have an international standard bike workshop and an incredible team of trained cycling guides.

For the last 20 years, we have been providing exceptional and meaningful holidays, enriching the lives of active travellers and our community, and exposing them to a unique way of living by sharing the real Cuban experience.

We aim for excellence in everything we do – from the quality of our tours to the service we give and the experiences we offer. This is our purpose. It’s why we exist.

Responsible Travel

Responsible travel is part of everything we do at Cubania; from the local ground staff we employ, to the family-run restaurants and B&Bs that we use, we aim to ensure that your money stays in Cuba and supports local businesses.

CUBA IS OUR PASSION

We are committed to showing Cuba to the world in an honest way, to reveal the uniqueness of the Cuban culture, by changing the existing perception of Cuba; not just playa, ron, mulatas. This is why we encourage our travellers to Do it the Cuban way!

LOCAL EXPERTISE & NETWORK

We have been working in Cuba for a long time; long enough to make long lasting friendships with our local partners. We are still the only travel company in Cuba to offer internationally recognised bike leader training (British Cycling) in addition to first aid training , guide training and health and safety training. In a country that’s constantly transforming, we dedicate a lot of time to nourishing our standing relationships and forging new ones.

WE ARE THE CYCLING EXPERTS

Over the years we have ridden 1000s of kilometres and explored the highroads and backroads of Cuba. We’ve cycled with Cuban Masters and figured out what the best bike is for Cuban roads. We have a team dedicated to caring for them and making sure they are in perfect working condition year-round.

LUCY DAVIES

Brought up in Latin America, Lucy started tour guiding whilst studying for her degree at Bristol University. After working in educational tourism in Europe, Lucy became a bike guide and led the first charity fundraising bike ride to Cuba in 1997. Instantly charmed by Cuba’s infectious atmosphere, she cycled the length and breadth of Cuba over the next few years and set up Cubania in 2003, understanding the need for an interface between Cuba and people wanting to discover the island. She currently lives in London and works from Cubania’s London Sales office, making frequent trips to Cuba.

ANIBAL PAEZ CRUZ

ANIBAL PAEZ CRUZ

An industrial engineer, Anibal started working in tourism over 20 years ago. He was the director of Specialised Tourism at Cuban Travel Agency, Cubanacan, before moving to Cubania in 2015.

Naturally gifted in IT, she took charge of the in house training and setting up of Cubania´s new software platform and she is now the Lynch pin between sales and operations, ensuring that clients receive their trip information quickly and accurately.

JACKSON HERRERA

JACKSON HERRERA

My name is Jocsan, but most people call me Jackson ever since I was a teenager, let’s blame it on the weird spelling. I was born and raised in Marianao, one of many Havana’s boroughs. As a child there were three things I always felt attracted to, music, languages and time travel. Unfortunately, the Marty McFly lifestyle didn’t pan out, so I replaced it with my love for both ancient and modern history. As a teenager my father pushed me to learn English which eventually became my obsession. By the time I turned 18 I was already teaching other people, and a year later I was running my own ESL private school even before I graduated. More than 10 years went by before I became a tour guide, and teaching gave me the chance to develop the right skills to deal with all kinds of people, be patient and try to give my best. This job is right up my alley, I get to mix my love for both languages and history in one gig and working with Cubania has given me the chance to do so. If you want to discover the ins and outs of this island, ride with me.

RAYSELIS RODRIGUEZ PUPO

RAYSELIS RODRIGUEZ PUPO

My name is Raiselis (Ray, is easier!) and I come from the outskirts of Havana province. I studied languages and literature at the University of Havana. History and Stylistics are my favourite subjects, but I also enjoy reading, dancing. I have been working as a guide for 15 years now, and this has opened up new horizons allowing me to discover other cultures. With my job comes interaction, challenges and spontaneity – that’s what I enjoy the most. With Cubania I have found the way to share the authentic Cuba with my clients. So, join me on a trip and my island will be yours forever!

LAZARO DE LA MAZA

LAZARO DE LA MAZA

I’m from Arroyo Naranjo, a suburb of Havana. My inspiration to learn English was a pretty 6th form teacher; I then went on to university to study English and French, graduating with joint honours, and in my third year I decided to add on German as well. I had many different jobs before becoming a tour guide including working in a bakery, working as a welder, renting out VHS movies, painting tourist handicrafts and of course, working as an English teacher. Anyone who wants to discover something different (and be technology free for a week or two) should visit Cuba. I assure you you’ll go back home with a new understanding of the country and its people who are proud of their culture and heritage. We may be a small island in the Caribbean, but the world certainly knows we exist!

JORGE SANCHEZ FERNANDEZ

JORGE SANCHEZ FERNANDEZ

I am what you call a Villa Clareño, someone who was born in the province of Villa Clara, in a small town called Miller. From a young age I enjoyed going to school and practising sports, in particular Karate. Thanks to my enthusiasm for the sport I was spotted by a sports specialist and continued my education within the educational sporting programme that Cuba offers to those who show a talent in a particular area. I was recruited to the national team but sadly had to cut short my sporting career due to an injury. I decided to go to university in Havana to study languages and graduated with a degree in French, Italian and English. It made sense to use this to my advantage and pursue a career in tourism. Although I enjoy meeting and working with tourists of all nationalities, I particularly like the British for their great sense of humour. I like walking and spending time outdoors, dancing and generally enjoying the positive and vibrant opportunities that my country offers. I try to put this positive attitude across to all the people I meet during my work.

DON’T JUST TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT

Don’t just take our word for it.

The staff at Cubania were very efficient and very professional throughout. Excellent time keeping and very quick to respond to any queries - we would recommend them.

Fantastic knowledge of country, excellent communication, superb organisation/recommendations and brilliant guides/staff. Probably one of our best holidays and certainly the most interesting.

We booked our first bike tour to Cuba through Cubania Travel and have nothing but good to say about their service. The booking process was smooth and everything promised to us was delivered.

What a wonderful trip. Mary and I loved it. Thank you so much to you and Carla for your outstanding organisation. In short, you excelled. Moreover Jorge and Frank were an absolutely brilliant team - world-class and as good as we have ever experienced anywhere in the world.

James Strachan

Incredible knowledge and guide from Cubania

Simone O'Reilly

Good trip, and a lot more tiring than you'd think in the heat... lots to see and a very varied and different environment. Needed more snacks really at the stops is my only suggestion, but there was plenty of water. The guide and his crew were very good.

I did a guided ebike tour with Cubania travelling out of Havana to the gorgeous Cuban countryside and down to the south coast. The guide was great fun and the whole trip was organised seamlessly. Loved riding round the back roads and up a few hills with an electronic boost!

Claire Boobbyer

If you are looking to get a glimpse of the real Cuba, cycling through it with an expert guide is the way to do it. I couldn't recommend Cubania tours more.

Hannah Goodwin

I took a group of pals to Cuba and Cubania organised the whole trip. Right through from pre-planning to conclusion, it went really well and it was FUN as well as a success. Happy Travellers. Thank you everyone at Cubania, well done!

Excellent, tailored to our individual wishes. Advice provided as requested.

Andrew Heald

We loved the itinerary that Cubania put together for our trip to Cuba. Our guide and driver were so helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. We discovered so much about Cuba's history and saw a lot of beautiful places. A real mixture of city culture and stunning countryside plus a very relaxed couple of days on Cayo Levisa.

Travel by Viazul Bus (How to Book Bus Tickets in Cuba)

Booking Viazul bus tickets in Cuba can seem like a daunting task and I’d be lying if I said it won’t consume some of your precious vacation time.

However, it is an affordable and efficient way to get around Cuba so it is worth the small amount of hassle you will encounter to purchase tickets for your routes.

Prior to leaving for our trip to Cuba, I scoured the internet trying to find a way to organize travel inside the country. I came up with a few things that looked promising but in the end, failed and we were forced to fly to Cuba without any plans.

While many forums told us this was just how Cuba works, I was nervous that we wouldn’t be able to travel to the places we wanted, on the days we wanted.

Don’t leave home without:   Lonely Planet Cuba (Travel Guide).

Viazul vs Transtur: Bus Tickets in Cuba

Table of Contents

While the bus ticket system that I found online for Viazul, Cuba’s main bus company, leads you to believe that you can book your tickets online, every single route I tried to reserve said sold out.

You can imagine this sent me into a state of planning panic but decided to believe the many forums in that we could book things once we are on the Cuban ground.

All of that advice proved to be right. We had no problem booking bus tickets for our desired two week Cuba itinerary once we were in Cuba. Don’t panic, just go with it because it’s just the way it works in Cuba.

While not being able to book bus tickets in advance can be cumbersome and pain, the process of purchasing tickets at a physical location is pretty painless.

The first thing you want to do when you arrive in Havana (assuming you start your travels here) is ask about taking a taxi service to the Viazul bus station. From Centro Havana, a taxi cost us $12CUC round trip from our casa to the bus station.

Hot Tip: Ask your taxi driver to wait for you so you don’t have to renegotiate with someone else.

Once you arrive, you will want to queue in the ticket purchase line. This will undoubtedly be the most frustrating part of the process as Cubans don’t understand the concept of queuing and frequently cut the line and refuse to stand at the back.

You’ll eventually get to the ticket counter. Be prepared in advance with your bus route, date and desired time written on a piece of paper in Spanish as most agents do not speak English. If you speak Spanish, then no need to worry.

Bus fares in Cuba (As of Jan 1, 2020)

  • Havana – Varadero  $10 (3 hours)
  • Varadero – Santiago   de Cuba  $49 (15 hours)
  • Santiago de Cuba – Baracoa  $15 (4 hours)
  • Santiago de Cuba – Trinidad  $33 (11 hours)
  • Trinidad – Havana  $24 (6 hours)
  • Havana – Viñales  $12 (3.5 hours)
  • Viñales – Trinidad $37 (12 hours)

Present your passport and let the agent know the information on the bus trip you want. She will check availability and then book the ticket for you.

The tickets are printed on plain paper and are actually a receipt, not your boarding ticket. Do not lose this piece of paper; you need it to check-in the day of your bus trip when you receive your real ticket. Pay for your tickets with cash, only in CUC.

You’re all set and just need to show up on the day of your Viazul bust trip at least 20 minutes in advance to check-in. This counter will generally be inside the station near the boarding gate.

The clerk will take your receipt and issue you an actual bus ticket. Once the bus arrives, be aware that there is no assigned seating and be on the ball if you are traveling with someone that you want to sit with. If you are not, you may have to ride separately.

Despite not being able to book in advance, the process is quite simple. The worst part is taking the time to stand in line when purchasing the ticket but the ride is actually quite pleasant and easy.

Hot Tip: When you arrive in your new destination, hop right into the ticket purchase line and buy your ticket to the next destination. This will save you a return trip to the bus station and in most cases ensure that you will have a seat on your desired date.

Booking Bus Tickets in Cuba on Transtur

If you are looking to book a Viazul ticket and find your route is sold out for the date you want, it is worth looking into a possible Transtur route service before committing to an overpriced taxi collectivo.

Transtur is a viable, affordable option that offers some, not all, of the same routes that Viazul runs for the exact same price and usually in shorter completion time.

Transtur does not have a posted nor set schedule and they do not run out of every city or between all the popular routes like Viazul does.

However, when they do operate between a route the prices are equivalent to Viazul and the routes tend to be a bit shorter because they make fewer stops between destinations.

We used Transtur to travel from Viñales to Trinidad because it saved us 2 hours of travel time. The cost was the same ($37CUC) and the bus was of the exact same quality, a coach bus with air conditioning and reclining seats.

The bus made a potty stop 3 hours in and then a lunch stop around noon at a nice, affordable bus stop with a restaurant and a little park with many animals to look at.

Transtur buses can be booked through any Cubanacan Travel Agency office around Cuba. They will be able to tell you which routes are available, the cost of the tickets, travel time a ticket cost.

A Note About the Taxi Collectivo

Every time you visit a travel agency or a Viazul bus station in Cuba you will be accosted, in a polite way, by many enthusiastic taxi collective drivers.

They have all the lines in the book and are very eager to tell unsuspecting tourists that they can take you to any of the most popular destinations, Havana, Cienfuegos, Viñales, Trinidad, Varadero, Havana…… for the same price as the bus and much faster.

Don’t fall for this. Do your homework, check out the guidebooks as they all list bus prices and do the math. The taxi collective really only works out to be cheaper if you have a group of 4 and can split it.

The hard sell will involve telling you that taking Viazul is too much work and they drop you at the bus station that is so far away from things and you will have to take a taxi.

This is not the case in 90% of the cities and for us, we only had to take a taxi to our casa from the bus station in Havana.

I am not saying you shouldn’t use them, they will certainly be faster than taking the bus and offer you the chance to stop off when you want for bathroom breaks, lunch and photo stops but just be warned that the line they sell isn’t entirely true.

If getting from point A to point B for the best price is your main goal, take the bus.

Want something other than Viazul?

18 thoughts on “Travel by Viazul Bus (How to Book Bus Tickets in Cuba)”

Can I get a bus from Havana airport to Cienfugos and how much is the cost? Do they operate on daily basis as well.

Yes, you should be able to. You’ll have to check with the bus companies directly for schedules and prices as they change often.

HI, Thanks for all the tips! I am planning on going to Cuba in May, do day trips to Varadero and Vinales but was wondering if it is worth staying a night in Trinidad? I wanted to go to Topes de Collantes but I dont know when the bus arrives and leaves Trinidad and if the tickets are round -trip and prebooked? Any advice would help Thanks!

Hi Kelly, Trinidad is AMAZING and you should give yourself at least 3 days there – we put together a massive guide to the city: https://www.divergenttravelers.com/trinidad-cuba-guide/ Topes de Collantes is a full day tour from Trinidad, so you need one full day for that. You can buy tickets to Trinidad from Havana and Vinales and all tickets in Cuba are sold as one way. YOu have to buy them at the bus station in the city you are departing from once you are already in Cuba. Booking online is not possible. How many days will you be in Cuba? Vinales isn’t a day trip from Havana either. Have a look at our Cuba section, where we’ve written a lot of content from our two visits (5 total weeks): https://www.divergenttravelers.com/category/cuba/ Cheers!

Thank you for the article! The bus receipt says 24cup but you paid 24cuc, so basically 24x more?

Yes, all tourists are charged in CUC.

Hello, We will be arriving and spending a few days in Havana before travelling on to Vinales, Cienfuego and Trinidad. Travelling by bus seems to be a convenient way to do this. Can you tell me if these buses have an area for luggage? Thank you.

Hi Pru, yes they do. There are large compartments under the bus laid out like a typical coach. Enjoy Cuba!

Is there only one bus station in Havana? I am trying to get from the Havana airport to veradero and it looks like I have to take a taxi from the airport to the bus station. The airport website says there is a counter in the airport to buy a bus ticket so that sounds a little less stressful than jockeying for position at the main station.

Your best option is to take a taxi from the airport to the bus station that is located in the new area of Havana. I don’t recommend getting a ticket at the airport because the bus doesn’t stop there on the route to Varadero. Enjoy Cuba!

Hi I’m flying into Varadero and wondering how I would go about booking a bus to Varadero Beach resort area before arriving or are there buses there that go hotel to hotel? Don’t really want to pay the high taxi fare Thanks

Hi Rose, taxi is likely going to be your best option unless you are staying at a resort that includes airport pickup. I would recommend checking with them first. Enjoy Cuba, it’s fabulous!

Hi, thanks for the great post! My husband & I are flying into Havana in the morning & will go straight to Trinidad as we want to come back to Havana for NYE. But we will most likely miss the last Viazul bus at 10:45 am. Do you know of any other later buses either with Viazul or Transtur or do they all leave in the morning? If not, is our only alternative to catch a taxi ($150-$200USD) or stay in Havana a night and leave the next day? If there was a way to fly from Havana to Trinidad that would be ideal as we don’t have a lot of time, but I can’t find any info on that either.

Any advice appreciated!

Hi Clare, yea, I would recommend staying in Havana that night and then taking the bus in the morning versus taking a taxi. You will have a hard time negotiating a fair price to Trinidad from the airport at that time of night too. There are some really nice casa particulars located within walking distance of the Viazul bus station in Havana, grab one of those for $35-$40/night and then hop on the bus in the morning. You cannot fly to Trinidad, the closest airport is Santa Clara which is still around 2 hours drive from Trinidad. If you haven’t booked your flight to Cuba yet though, you could fly into Santa Clara and then take a taxi to Trinidad. Just a thought. Good luck and enjoy Cuba!

Hello, Just wondering, did you book tickets for the Vinales-Trinidad Transtur service in Havana or Vinales? I’ve secured reservations online with Viazul for all my other routes around Cuba except for my Vinales-Trinidad journey! Thanks!

Hi Clair, yes, we booked our bus tickets on Transtur from Viñales to Trinidad when we arrived in Viñales. It was easy. Lucky that you were able to secure bus tickets online for Viazul. We tried this prior to arriving in Cuba and the site would not work, so all our tickets were booked in Cuba on a point to point basis. Never had any troubles getting seats or making the arrangements, it just takes time. Transtur is actually much easier to buy tickets for and use because the offices that sell the tickets are right in the town centers, where the Viazul bus stations are sometimes a taxi cab away. Have fun, Cuba is great. We’re headed back early Feb to lead our photography tour!

Hello, The viazu website is working but for next week it is sold out. We can not find transtur on the web. We would like to do 2 Bookings

from home in stead of standing in the queue. You know were we can book them online? Kind regards

I would not recommend not booking online. Everything or most of everything in Cuba is done by walking up in person since they do not use the interent. Internet can only be found in public parks so most booking places may let you book online but when you get there they will not have your booking.

Travel Itinerary For One Week in Moscow: The Best of Moscow!

I just got back from one week in Moscow. And, as you might have already guessed, it was a mind-boggling experience. It was not my first trip to the Russian capital. But I hardly ever got enough time to explore this sprawling city. Visiting places for business rarely leaves enough time for sightseeing. I think that if you’ve got one week in Russia, you can also consider splitting your time between its largest cities (i.e. Saint Petersburg ) to get the most out of your trip. Seven days will let you see the majority of the main sights and go beyond just scratching the surface. In this post, I’m going to share with you my idea of the perfect travel itinerary for one week in Moscow.

Moscow is perhaps both the business and cultural hub of Russia. There is a lot more to see here than just the Kremlin and Saint Basil’s Cathedral. Centuries-old churches with onion-shaped domes dotted around the city are in stark contrast with newly completed impressive skyscrapers of Moscow City dominating the skyline. I spent a lot of time thinking about my Moscow itinerary before I left. And this city lived up to all of my expectations.

7-day Moscow itinerary

Travel Itinerary For One Week in Moscow

Day 1 – red square and the kremlin.

Metro Station: Okhotny Ryad on Red Line.

No trip to Moscow would be complete without seeing its main attraction. The Red Square is just a stone’s throw away from several metro stations. It is home to some of the most impressive architectural masterpieces in the city. The first thing you’ll probably notice after entering it and passing vendors selling weird fur hats is the fairytale-like looking Saint Basil’s Cathedral. It was built to commemorate one of the major victories of Ivan the Terrible. I once spent 20 minutes gazing at it, trying to find the perfect angle to snap it. It was easier said than done because of the hordes of locals and tourists.

As you continue strolling around Red Square, there’s no way you can miss Gum. It was widely known as the main department store during the Soviet Era. Now this large (yet historic) shopping mall is filled with expensive boutiques, pricey eateries, etc. During my trip to Moscow, I was on a tight budget. So I only took a retro-style stroll in Gum to get a rare glimpse of a place where Soviet leaders used to grocery shop and buy their stuff. In case you want some modern shopping experience, head to the Okhotny Ryad Shopping Center with stores like New Yorker, Zara, and Adidas.

To continue this Moscow itinerary, next you may want to go inside the Kremlin walls. This is the center of Russian political power and the president’s official residence. If you’re planning to pay Kremlin a visit do your best to visit Ivan the Great Bell Tower as well. Go there as early as possible to avoid crowds and get an incredible bird’s-eye view. There are a couple of museums that are available during designated visiting hours. Make sure to book your ticket online and avoid lines.

Day 2 – Cathedral of Christ the Saviour, the Tretyakov Gallery, and the Arbat Street

Metro Station: Kropotkinskaya on Red Line

As soon as you start creating a Moscow itinerary for your second day, you’ll discover that there are plenty of metro stations that are much closer to certain sites. Depending on your route, take a closer look at the metro map to pick the closest.

The white marble walls of Christ the Saviour Cathedral are awe-inspiring. As you approach this tallest Orthodox Christian church, you may notice the bronze sculptures, magnificent arches, and cupolas that were created to commemorate Russia’s victory against Napoleon.

Unfortunately, the current Cathedral is a replica, since original was blown to bits in 1931 by the Soviet government. The new cathedral basically follows the original design, but they have added some new elements such as marble high reliefs.

Home to some precious collection of artworks, in Tretyakov Gallery you can find more than 150,000 of works spanning centuries of artistic endeavor. Originally a privately owned gallery, it now has become one of the largest museums in Russia. The Gallery is often considered essential to visit. But I have encountered a lot of locals who have never been there.

Famous for its souvenirs, musicians, and theaters, Arbat street is among the few in Moscow that were turned into pedestrian zones. Arbat street is usually very busy with tourists and locals alike. My local friend once called it the oldest street in Moscow dating back to 1493. It is a kilometer long walking street filled with fancy gift shops, small cozy restaurants, lots of cute cafes, and street artists. It is closed to any vehicular traffic, so you can easily stroll it with kids.

Day 3 – Moscow River Boat Ride, Poklonnaya Hill Victory Park, the Moscow City

Metro Station: Kievskaya and Park Pobedy on Dark Blue Line / Vystavochnaya on Light Blue Line

Voyaging along the Moscow River is definitely one of the best ways to catch a glimpse of the city and see the attractions from a bit different perspective. Depending on your Moscow itinerary, travel budget and the time of the year, there are various types of boats available. In the summer there is no shortage of boats, and you’ll be spoiled for choice.

exploring Moscow

Travel Itinerary for One Week in Beijing

If you find yourself in Moscow during the winter months, I’d recommend going with Radisson boat cruise. These are often more expensive (yet comfy). They offer refreshments like tea, coffee, hot chocolate, and, of course, alcoholic drinks. Prices may vary but mostly depend on your food and drink selection. Find their main pier near the opulent Ukraine hotel . The hotel is one of the “Seven Sisters”, so if you’re into the charm of Stalinist architecture don’t miss a chance to stay there.

The area near Poklonnaya Hill has the closest relation to the country’s recent past. The memorial complex was completed in the mid-1990s to commemorate the Victory and WW2 casualties. Also known as the Great Patriotic War Museum, activities here include indoor attractions while the grounds around host an open-air museum with old tanks and other vehicles used on the battlefield.

How I Planned My Trip to Vietnam

The hallmark of the memorial complex and the first thing you see as you exit metro is the statue of Nike mounted to its column. This is a very impressive Obelisk with a statue of Saint George slaying the dragon at its base.

Maybe not as impressive as Shanghai’s Oriental Pearl Tower , the skyscrapers of the Moscow City (otherwise known as Moscow International Business Center) are so drastically different from dull Soviet architecture. With 239 meters and 60 floors, the Empire Tower is the seventh highest building in the business district.

The observation deck occupies 56 floor from where you have some panoramic views of the city. I loved the view in the direction of Moscow State University and Luzhniki stadium as well to the other side with residential quarters. The entrance fee is pricey, but if you’re want to get a bird’s eye view, the skyscraper is one of the best places for doing just that.

Day 4 – VDNKh, Worker and Collective Farm Woman Monument, The Ostankino TV Tower

Metro Station: VDNKh on Orange Line

VDNKh is one of my favorite attractions in Moscow. The weird abbreviation actually stands for Russian vystavka dostizheniy narodnogo khozyaystva (Exhibition of Achievements of the National Economy). With more than 200 buildings and 30 pavilions on the grounds, VDNKh serves as an open-air museum. You can easily spend a full day here since the park occupies a very large area.

Moscow sights

Places to Visit in Barcelona That Aren’t Beaches

First, there are pavilions that used to showcase different cultures the USSR was made of. Additionally, there is a number of shopping pavilions, as well as Moskvarium (an Oceanarium) that features a variety of marine species. VDNKh is a popular venue for events and fairs. There is always something going on, so I’d recommend checking their website if you want to see some particular exhibition.

A stone’s throw away from VDNKh there is a very distinctive 25-meters high monument. Originally built in 1937 for the world fair in Paris, the hulking figures of men and women holding a hammer and a sickle represent the Soviet idea of united workers and farmers. It doesn’t take much time to see the monument, but visiting it gives some idea of the Soviet Union’s grandiose aspirations.

I have a thing for tall buildings. So to continue my travel itinerary for one week in Moscow I decided to climb the fourth highest TV tower in the world. This iconic 540m tower is a fixture of the skyline. You can see it virtually from everywhere in Moscow, and this is where you can get the best panoramic views (yep, even better than Empire skyscraper).

top things to do in Moscow

Parts of the floor are made of tempered glass, so it can be quite scary to exit the elevator. But trust me, as you start observing buildings and cars below, you won’t want to leave. There is only a limited number of tickets per day, so you may want to book online. Insider tip: the first tour is cheaper, you can save up to $10 if go there early.

Day 5 – A Tour To Moscow Manor Houses

Metro Station: Kolomenskoye, Tsaritsyno on Dark Green Line / Kuskovo on Purple Line

I love visiting the manor houses and palaces in Moscow. These opulent buildings were generally built to house Russian aristocratic families and monarchs. Houses tend to be rather grand affairs with impressive architecture. And, depending on the whims of the owners, some form of a landscaped garden.

During the early part of the 20th century though, many of Russia’s aristocratic families (including the family of the last emperor) ended up being killed or moving abroad . Their manor houses were nationalized. Some time later (after the fall of the USSR) these were open to the public. It means that today a great many of Moscow’s finest manor houses and palaces are open for touring.

one week Moscow itinerary

20 Travel Tips I’ve Learned From Travelling The World

There are 20 manor houses scattered throughout the city and more than 25 in the area around. But not all of them easily accessible and exploring them often takes a lot of time. I’d recommend focusing on three most popular estates in Moscow that are some 30-minute metro ride away from Kremlin.

Sandwiched between the Moscow River and the Andropov Avenue, Kolomenskoye is a UNESCO site that became a public park in the 1920’s. Once a former royal estate, now it is one of the most tranquil parks in the city with gorgeous views. The Ascension Church, The White Column, and the grounds are a truly grand place to visit.

You could easily spend a full day here, exploring a traditional Russian village (that is, in fact, a market), picnicking by the river, enjoying the Eastern Orthodox church architecture, hiking the grounds as well as and wandering the park and gardens with wildflower meadows, apple orchards, and birch and maple groves. The estate museum showcases Russian nature at its finest year-round.

If my travel itinerary for one week in Moscow was a family tree, Tsaritsyno Park would probably be the crazy uncle that no-one talks about. It’s a large park in the south of the city of mind-boggling proportions, unbelievable in so many ways, and yet most travelers have never heard of it.

The palace was supposed to be a summer home for Empress Catherine the Great. But since the construction didn’t meet with her approval the palace was abandoned. Since the early 1990’s the palace, the pond, and the grounds have been undergoing renovations. The entire complex is now looking brighter and more elaborately decorated than at possibly any other time during its history. Like most parks in Moscow, you can visit Tsaritsyno free of charge, but there is a small fee if you want to visit the palace.

Moscow itinerary

How To Stop Procrastinating When Trip Planning

Last, but by no means least on my Moscow itinerary is Kuskovo Park . This is definitely an off-the-beaten-path place. While it is not easily accessible, you will be rewarded with a lack of crowds. This 18th-century summer country house of the Sheremetev family was one of the first summer country estates of the Russian nobility. And when you visit you’ll quickly realize why locals love this park.

Like many other estates, Kuskovo has just been renovated. So there are lovely French formal garden, a grotto, and the Dutch house to explore. Make sure to plan your itinerary well because the estate is some way from a metro station.

Day 6 – Explore the Golden Ring

Creating the Moscow itinerary may keep you busy for days with the seemingly endless amount of things to do. Visiting the so-called Golden Ring is like stepping back in time. Golden Ring is a “theme route” devised by promotion-minded journalist and writer Yuri Bychkov.

Having started in Moscow the route will take you through a number of historical cities. It now includes Suzdal, Vladimir, Kostroma, Yaroslavl and Sergiev Posad. All these awe-inspiring towns have their own smaller kremlins and feature dramatic churches with onion-shaped domes, tranquil residential areas, and other architectural landmarks.

Two Weeks In Thailand: The Perfect 14-Day Itinerary

I only visited two out of eight cities included on the route. It is a no-brainer that Sergiev Posad is the nearest and the easiest city to see on a day trip from Moscow. That being said, you can explore its main attractions in just one day. Located some 70 km north-east of the Russian capital, this tiny and overlooked town is home to Trinity Lavra of St. Sergius, UNESCO Site.

Sergiev Posad is often described as being at the heart of Russian spiritual life. So it is uncommon to see the crowds of Russian pilgrims showing a deep reverence for their religion. If you’re traveling independently and using public transport, you can reach Sergiev Posad by bus (departs from VDNKh) or by suburban commuter train from Yaroslavskaya Railway Station (Bahnhof). It takes about one and a half hours to reach the town.

Trinity Lavra of St. Sergius is a great place to get a glimpse of filling and warming Russian lunch, specifically at the “ Gostevaya Izba ” restaurant. Try the duck breast, hearty potato and vegetables, and the awesome Napoleon cake.

Day 7 – Gorky Park, Izmailovo Kremlin, Patriarch’s Ponds

Metro Station: Park Kultury or Oktyabrskaya on Circle Line / Partizanskaya on Dark Blue Line / Pushkinskaya on Dark Green Line

Gorky Park is in the heart of Moscow. It offers many different types of outdoor activities, such as dancing, cycling, skateboarding, walking, jogging, and anything else you can do in a park. Named after Maxim Gorky, this sprawling and lovely park is where locals go on a picnic, relax and enjoy free yoga classes. It’s a popular place to bike around, and there is a Muzeon Art Park not far from here. A dynamic location with a younger vibe. There is also a pier, so you can take a cruise along the river too.

How to Save Money While Traveling in Europe

The Kremlin in Izmailovo is by no means like the one you can find near the Red Square. Originally built for decorative purposes, it now features the Vernissage flea market and a number of frequent fairs, exhibitions, and conferences. Every weekend, there’s a giant flea market in Izmailovo, where dozens of stalls sell Soviet propaganda crap, Russian nesting dolls, vinyl records, jewelry and just about any object you can imagine. Go early in the morning if you want to beat the crowds.

All the Bulgakov’s fans should pay a visit to Patriarch’s Ponds (yup, that is plural). With a lovely small city park and the only one (!) pond in the middle, the location is where the opening scene of Bulgakov’s novel Master and Margarita was set. The novel is centered around a visit by Devil to the atheistic Soviet Union is considered by many critics to be one of the best novels of the 20th century. I spent great two hours strolling the nearby streets and having lunch in the hipster cafe.

Conclusion and Recommendations

To conclude, Moscow is a safe city to visit. I have never had a problem with getting around and most locals are really friendly once they know you’re a foreigner. Moscow has undergone some serious reconstruction over the last few years. So you can expect some places to be completely different. I hope my one week Moscow itinerary was helpful! If you have less time, say 4 days or 5 days, I would cut out day 6 and day 7. You could save the Golden Ring for a separate trip entirely as there’s lots to see!

I know very little about Moscow or Russia for the\at matter. I do know I would have to see the Red Square and all of its exquisite architectural masterpieces. Also the CATHEDRAL OF CHRIST THE SAVIOUR. Thanks for shedding some light on visiting Moscow.

Thanks for swinging by! The Red Square is a great starting point, but there way too many places and things to discover aside from it!
